Customer reviews

Giving my website site real quality
This slide show is giving my site glamour and quality. The customers see more photos because they don't have to click into each one by hand or have mediocre slide shows. I love the fade effect leading to a movie feeling and celebrating the beauty of the items. The usability on a smartphone is very important and works perfectly on this module. I use it on the Opencart Journal2 theme with a little help from the nice developer.
